    Oracle HTTP Server is required when using Oracle Identity Federation for enterprise level single sign-on with Oracle Single Sign-On and Oracle Access Manager. Although Oracle Identity Federation can function without Oracle HTTP Server, there are advantages to configuring it as a proxy for Oracle Identity Federation.

    When you select Oracle HTTP Server and Oracle Identity Federation on this Configure Components screen, the Configuration Wizard configures the Oracle HTTP Server so that the Oracle Identity Federation application can be accessed through Oracle HTTP Server ports.

    Refer to the "Deploying Oracle Identity Federation with Oracle HTTP Server" section in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle Identity Federation for more information.

    The Oracle Directory Services Manager and Fusion Middleware Control management components are automatically selected for this installation.

    Ensure no other components are selected and click Next. The Configure Ports screen appears.

  10. Choose how you want the Installer to configure ports:

    • Select Auto Port Configuration if you want the Installer to configure ports from a predetermined range.

    • Select Specify Ports using Configuration File if you want the Installer to configure ports using the staticports.ini file. You can click View/Edit File to update the settings in the staticports.ini file.

    Click Next. The Specify Schema Database screen appears.

  11. Identify the ODS schema for Oracle Internet Directory that you created in step 3 by selecting Use Existing Schema and entering the following information:

    • Enter the database connection information in the Connect String field. The connection string must be in the form: hostname:port:servicename. For Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC), the connection string must be in the form: hostname1:port1:instance1^hostname2:port2:instance2@servicename.

    • Enter the password for the ODS schema in the Password field and click Next.

      Note:

      If your existing ODS and ODSSM schemas have different passwords, the Specify ODSSM Password screen will appear after you click Next. Enter the password for your existing ODSSM schema and click Next.

      The Create Oracle Internet Directory screen appears.

  12. Enter the following information for Oracle Internet Directory:

    • Realm: Enter the location for your realm.

    • Administrator Password: Enter the password for the Oracle Internet Directory administrator.

    • Confirm Password: Enter the administrator password again.

    Click Next. The Specify OIF Details screen appears.

  13. Enter the following information:

    • PKCS12 Password: Enter the password Oracle Identity Federation will use for encryption and for signing wallets. The Installer automatically generates these wallets with self-signed certificates. Oracle recommends using the wallets only for testing.

    • Confirm Password: Enter the PKCS12 password again.

    • Server ID: Enter a string that will be used to identify this Oracle Identity Federation instance. A prefix of oif will be added to the beginning of the string you enter. Each logical Oracle Identity Federation instance within an Oracle WebLogic Server administration domain must have a unique Server ID. Clustered Oracle Identity Federation instances acting as a single logical instance will have the same Server ID.

    Click Next. The Select OIF Advanced Flow Attributes screen appears.

    Notes:

    • Notice that the options for Authentication Type, User Store and Federation Store are automatically set to LDAP because you are installing Oracle Internet Directory with Oracle Identity Federation.

    • The Installer sets the User Federation Record Context to cn=fed,BASE_REALM, where BASE_REALM is typically dc=us,dc=oracle,dc=com.

  14. Select the appropriate option for each configuration item and click Next:

    Note:

    User Session Store and Message Store appear in the Installer as separate configuration items, however, most deployments use the same type of repository for both stores.
    • User Session Store: Memory or RDBMS

      • Select Memory to store transient runtime session state data in in-memory tables.

      • Select RDBMS to store transient runtime session state data in a relational database.

    • Message Store: Memory or RDBMS

      • Select Memory to store transient protocol messages in in-memory tables

      • Select RDBMS to store transient protocol messages in a relational database.

    • Configuration Store: File or RDBMS

      • Select File to store Oracle Identity Federation configuration data on the local file system.

      • Select RDBMS to store Oracle Identity Federation configuration data in a relational database.

    Note:

    The screens that appear next depend on the options you selected for the configuration items.
    • If you selected RDBMS for User Session Store, Message Store, or Configuration Store, go to step 15 now.

    • If you did not select RDBMS for User Session Store, Message Store, or Configuration Store, go to step 16 now.

  15. Enter the following information on the Specify Transient Store Database Details screen:

    • HostName: Enter the connection string to the database host in the form: hostname:port:servicename. For Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC), the connection string must be in the form: hostname1:port1:instance1^hostname2:port2:instance2@servicename.

    • Username: Enter the name of the schema owner created by RCU, which is of the form PREFIX_OIF.

    • Password: Enter the password for the database user.

  16. Complete the installation by performing all the steps in Completing an Installation.
